the mourners as the bodies of the u.s. ambassador and others killed in libya return to the united states. and mitt romney ramps up his criticism of the president again as the latest polls show him falling behind in several crucial states. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> but we begin with these live pictures. look at this. this is tahrir square in cairo. these are live pictures coming in not far from the united states embassy. once again, the protests escalating even as we speak. earlier in the day it had been relatively -- keyword, relatively, quiet. now seems to be escalating for some reason. our own ben wedeman is on the ground for us. we're going to be going to him shortly. at the same time as these scenes are unfolding, there also have been frightening scenes of violence and hatred directed at the united states and others around the region. it's spreading. and u.s. officials are very worried. sources tell me they're especially concerned about today's penetration of the united states embassy in tunisia and the reports that the american school was actually burned.
speaker of the house, john boehner. >> welcome. let me just say ohio has a great united states senator in rob portman. he's been my friend for about 25 years and i remember about 22 years ago telling rob he ought to leaf the white house and go home and get himself ready to run for congress. let me tell you what, he's done a great job on behalf of cincinnati and a great job on behalf of ohio and the country in all of his roles in public service. rob, keep up the great job. republicans were lucky enough to win the majority 18 months ago. we promised the american people that it would not be about us, it would be about the american people. we promised to listen to the american people and follow their will. that's for 18 straight months, we have focused on the economy and jobs every single day. and you know, while we've done all of this good work in the house and done what the people have asked us to do, harry reid has blocked everything we sent over there. this is why it's important we elect josh man del and harry reid back to nevada. the president made a lot of promises in his campaign. m
country. your choice. >>> we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention, as charlotte, north carolina. i'm on the convention floor, i'm wolf blitzer. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. ining us now inrco all of thiweek,nderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our w sws whyhat case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. nesn mitt romney's convention bous. what are the numbers? their convtion tonight, ts let'slook at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy,
that open new plants and train new workers right here in the united states of america we can reward those companies that build right here and double their exports. we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. you can make that happen. >> i want to create a future where everyone who wants a job can find a job. where no senior figures for their security of their retirement and every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon. and unlike the president, i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. host: has either campaign in specific on how they plan to create 1 million new jobs? politics is not my area, but from what i have followed i have not seen at all specifically this is going to happen. its romney's plan, one of five. is to reduce the deficit. but it is not clear how it leads to more jobs in a direct way. obviously, overall, a strong quake -- stronger economy and reduced debt leads to a better economic environment. but as you cut contractors, teachers, whatever -- anytime government is cutting spending, c
the world, american embassies and even german and british beamtions are on high alert. united states marines so-called fast teams. teams to secure embassies are being dispatched throughout the middle east to ensure the safety of our personnel abroad in many public squares across the middle east, flags are being burned and embassies are attempting to be entered by some of these protesters. a terrifying map if you think about it it includes not just countries you would expect to experience unrest. countries like tunisia that you would think relatively unstable. that as it at this that that that -- >> jay carney, the white house press secretary says something eyebrow-raising and interesting yesterday when he was asked what the source of all this unrest is. let's listen: this is a fairly volatile situation not in response to united states policy. not to to obviously the administration or the american people. it is response to it a video, a film that we have a judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protest directe
privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going

the region the united states shut many diplomatic facilities because friday prayers often fueled mob rage. some of the ugliest violence, thou though, is in pakistan. in peshawar, protesters set fire to two movie theaters. joining us live from islamabad with more, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. a national holiday, a day to show your love for the approvest muhammad. it turned out to be a day where many pakistanis showed their anger against america, demonstrations in every major city in pakistan and sometimes it got very violent. one news van driver in the city of peshawar shot and killed. here in the capital of islamabad, protests are dying down. here is what it looked like earlier today. friday prayers have just concluded. what we're seeing are some of the largest and most intense protests yet here in pakistan. now what you see over there are shipping containers. police are using them to block off the path to the diplomatic enclave. that's where the foreign embassies are, u.s. embassy, french embassy. now what you seem to have here is some people urging protesters to rush

the united states of america. [cheers and applause] [audience chanting "usa!"] so i've got news for you, john mccain. we all put our country first. america, our work will not be easy. the challenges we face require tough choices, and democrats as well as republicans will need to cast off the worn-out ideas and politics of the past. for part of what has been lost these past eight years can't just be measured by lost wages or bigger trade deficits. what has also been lost is our sense of common purpose - our sense of higher purpose. and that's what we have to restore. we may not agree on abortion, but surely we can agree on reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies in this country. [cheers and applause] the reality of gun ownership may be different for hunters in rural ohio than for those plagued by gang-violence in cleveland, but don't tell me we can't uphold the second amendment while keeping ak-47s out of the hands of criminals.

safely to us. i can never lose hope. >> please help me get home. 33 years of service to the united states deserves something. >> what gives you hope when you look at that video and see how he looks? >> i know when he looks determined, and he looked very determined to make it home safe and sound. >> her husband has missed walking one of his daughters down the aisle. another daughter's wedding is in february. >> his closet is still full of his clothes and i know it won't fit him anymore. and i haven't even touched his dresser. every morning i'm reminded that the nightmare continues. >> if he is able to see this what do you want the say directly to him? >> we will never, ever, ever stop looking for you. i miss you every day. love you. >> reporter: the u.s. has offered no new information about where levinson is and who's holding him. i spoke to a source with knowledge of the investigation who says "there is every reason to believe that levinson is alive and well." >>> police have found the body of a retired firefighter in nebraska. charlie dowd was traveling to visit family by amtrak when he
you as president of the united states. they say, here are some specifics. >> he will with, i can tell them specifically what my policy looks like. >> and the devil is in the details. what are we talking about? >> the devil's in the details snt angel is in the policy, which is creating more jobs. >> the devil is in the detail, the angel is in the policy that i won't tell you until i get an offer. which one is right? he has a lower percentage of taxes than 60% of americans. he's in the top 0.0025% of wealth in the country. don't you feel comfortable with that, michelle? >> between now and election day, we're going to see how many ways there are for mitt romney to say, none of your business what i plan to do. it will be a stretch but he's going to have to come up with a lot of different ways to say them. >> it is amazing. dana, do you think that with this little time left, can he sell this to the public? can he continue to do this? >> that's exactly the problem. he has not gotten specific about t he tells us that he loves snooki and chocolate milk and george clooney movies but he won't t
if this is going to silence his partisan critic in the united states senate who would like to keep control of the united states senate? i don't think so. >> will it even silence republicans? because some have said that no matter what romney releases, that this is not going to end. >> you know, i think that this whole tax release thing is basically a media invention, a partisan invention. he had released two years. now he's released three years. i don't think the public is interested. gallup yesterday released a poll that was really stunning, that the u.s. trust of the media is at an all-time low. 60% of americans have little to no trust in the media, particularly now that we're going into the election season, because the media -- we're chasing these silly stories like the tax returns or the hidden videos and we're not getting to the meat and the substance of the different candidates, of mitt romney and president obama, their policies, whether they're successful or not, and what that means for the future of this country. we're focusing on the wrong things. >> all right, well, let's get back
to host this debate. my name a jonathan dine and i'm a libertarian candidate for the united states senate. like many of you, i'm tired of the constant fighting of the republicans and democrats. beating the other team has become more important. america is now on the verge of a financial collapse and both parties are to blame with their wreckless tax, borrow and spend policies. neither party seriously about balancing the budget or lowering your taxes or restoring your personal freedom. for as long as i can remember, republican and democrat politicians offering up solutions. higher and higher taxes. enough is enough. as a libertarian senator, i will stand up for your personal freedom, i'm socially accepting and tolerance. i'm also fiscalally responsible. i'm tired of the wreckless spending and the wreckless earmarks as your senator, i will vote no to wreckless spending, vote no to any legislation where spending exceeds revenue. i will advocate on the part of the balanced budget amendment. the government should live within its means just like the people of missouri. supporting my candidacy m
, it is at the united states and the so-called t-5 plus 1, a group of counselries meeting with negotiation with iran over the last several years. you know, i think president obama has been clear what his red line is. his is iran will not acquire a nuclear weapon. if they make a move in that direction, the u.s. will use whatever options necessary. israel has a different red line. they try to nudge the negotiators and the other international parties. >> shannon: you mentioned the president and his red line. he has taken criticism this week from the g.o.p. official nominee, mitt romney. let's tick a listen at what he had to say this week. >> every american was relieved the day president obama gave the order and seal team 6 took out bin laden. on another front, every american is less secure today because he has failed to slow iran's nuclear threat. >> doctor, he did praise him for taking out bin laden but said that the president has failed when it comes to this particular issue of the nuclear threat. we are also getting news that iran has signed a deal with north korea to share laboratories and technolo

[applause] >> it is cold, we have to cheer about something, right? it was a cold, december morning four and a half years ago we told -- we pulled our rental of college students into iowa. we went door to door, for a guy named barack obama. almost nobody in town had ever heard of him. they asked some pretty tough questions. would he stand up for the middle-class? for people like them, not just for those at the very top. they asked us, would he get us out of this mess at -- in iraq? and did he have the guts to take on the insurance companies and reform health care? conversations like this were taking place all over iowa. iowans know the real bill when you see it. they took the measure of this man. they looked him in the eye and you sent him on to be president of the united states. thank you, iowa, for that. a lot has happened since then, and we still have a long, long way to go, but today we can go ba
, and there are almost no indicators that a former president of the united states lived in this house. it is not like here is president bush in his flight suit. there is one picture, the what of all the president's in the office. i said to her, and you miss the white house? gigots -- she goes -- are you kidding me? >> for me, having not just about first ladies, but they all have potential first ladies. the stories that always tend to stick with me had to be that it is much harder for the family. even if you are an experienced political family, it is hard. we all take things that happen to our families and i choose to be in this business. if somebody goes on my page and doesn't like an interview i did, that is part of my life since i started in journalism. some people like what you say and some people don't. but my family takes it very personally. it is hard for them to see that somebody said something critical of me. magnify that for being on the political stage and often, the best conversations i have had with potential first lady's are really to the heart of what they think about. the psychology of
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
last week made no mention of military service members or the war the united states is still fighting in afghanistan. it's a point that tammy duckworth, a war-wounded veteran and illinois candidate for the house of representatives did not miss. >> when it comes to our men and women in harm's way, we have a clear choice on november 6th. last week mitt romney had a chance to show his support for the brave men and women he is seeking to command, but he chose to criticize president obama instead of even uttering the word afghanistan. >> and then there was one card the republicans kept so close to the vest that we never saw or heard any mention of it. it was as if their last two-term president never existed. maybe george w. bush was the invisible guy in the chair, but there was no missing the democrats last two-term president on wednesday night. if there was any card bill clinton was holding, it had to be a spade because he dug right into the accomplishments of the obama administration with a 49-minute workhorse, or donkey, of a speech. in fact, the new york giants could have taken some no

. there is the united states of america. there is not a black america and a white america and latino america and an asian america, but there is the united states of america. >> from the first time he took to the kconvention speech as th keynoter in 2004, there has been no doubt that barack obama can step into the spotlight and dazzle. four years later in denver, the optics match the excitement for the presidential campaign with greek columns surrounding him in front of a crowd of more than 75,000, and the democratic nominee delivered an electric speech. >> out of work, tough luck, you are on your own. no health care? the market will fix it. you're on your own. born into poverty? pull yourself up by your own boot straps, because even if you don't have boot, you are on your own. well, it is time for them to own their failure. it is time for us to change america, and that's why i'm running for president of the united states. >> this week in tampa, the republicans argue that barack obama is a great talker who doesn't deliver. it frames a dilemma for the third speech at a democratic national conv
,000 people have been massacred and the president of the united states doesn't even speak on their behalf. they believe that america is weak and we are withdrawing. that is what it is all about. >>neil: with the more violence the more the folks are inclined to say, to hell with him. i had ron paul on a couple of days ago and i mentioned to him, you thought it was a good idea to encourage the moderates throughout the middle east, particularly places like libya and he took a different view. listen to this reaction. >> it doesn't do any good. what good was the $40 billion or so we gave to mubarak in egypt? it fell apart. there is chaos there now. i would say it was a bad investment from the beginning. >>neil: that view is no more good money after bad? >>guest: i wish that senator paul, who has never traveled to that part of the world, would have been with me on july 7, me and ambassador stevens, when thousands of people in tripoli said, thank you america, thank you. look, the moderates just won the election in libya. this is an attempt of the extreme muslims to take over through use of arms

[applause] yes, yes. yes. yes, america has a way of making the impossible seemed inevitable in retrospect but we know it was never inevitable. it took leadership. and it occurs. and it's a belief that our values. mitt romney and paul ryan have the integrity and the experience and the vision to lead us. they know who we are. they know who we want to be. they know who we are in the world and what we offer. that is why this is a moment of consequence. because it just has to be that the most compassionate country on the face of the earth will continue to be the most powerful and that begins -- beacon for prosperity and the party across the world. god bless you and god bless this extraordinary country. the united states of america. >> from the state of new mexico, the first hispanic female governor in the history of the united states, please welcome governor susana martinez. . brian butler, president of lgbt democrat of north carolina's discuss
